Natural Proofs

Famous quotes containing the words natural and/or proofs:

    Being natural is one of the most irritating poses I know in people.
    Alexander Theroux (b. 1940)

    To invent without scruple a new principle to every new phenomenon, instead of adapting it to the old; to overload our hypothesis with a variety of this kind, are certain proofs that none of these principles is the just one, and that we only desire, by a number of falsehoods, to cover our ignorance of the truth.
    David Hume (1711–1776)
